Awake Wins Gold for Network Detection and Response. And more…

2019 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards

We’re excited to keep the awards drumbeat going. Awake was recognized across multiple categories in the 2019 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards program. We are especially thrilled to announce that the Awake Security Platform, which quickly kicked-off 2019 as an award-winning product with recognition by Info Security Products Guide, took home Gold in the Network Detection and Response category.

But that’s not all. The Awake Security Platform also took home Silver across additional Product Award categories – Forensics; Incident Response; Intrusion Detection and Prevention; Network Security; Network Traffic Analysis; Security Analytics; and Threat Detection, Intelligence, and Response.

Awake was also honored not once, but twice across the Company Award categories. We took home Silver in the Best Cybersecurity Startup category and Bronze in the Most Innovative Cybersecurity Company category.

The Cybersecurity Excellence Awards honor individuals, products and companies that demonstrate excellence, innovation, and leadership in information security. Awake was recognized this year primarily for its privacy-aware solution capable of detecting behavioral, mal-intent and compliance threats with full forensics context. This is made possible by our unique approach to applying artificial intelligence (AI) to instantly analyze billions of packets and immediately discover every device, user and application on a network. Industry backing by analyst firm Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) has validated this approach. EMA named Awake as “Value Leader” in its Network Security Analytics report and came out as #1 for delivering the best time to ROI and value at the lowest ongoing operational effort and cost.

This is not the first time Awake has been recognized by the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards program. Last year, we won Gold in The Security Investigation Platform category and Bronze in the Forensic and Threat Hunting categories.

The 2019 awards season has only just started to heat up. These early wins validate our team’s hard work and dedication to putting out an exceptional product. We’re excited to see what the rest of the year has in store for us.
